Eight great ideas for Chanukah

I am blessed. It is said, “That if you love your work, then you don’t really work a day in your life”. This is how I feel about the time I give to helping the orphaned and disadvantaged girls at Lev Lalev Children’s Home in Israel. It’s a great blessing to be able to help our girls reach their highest potential. Like the miracle of the Chanukah oil which lasted for eight days, we provide our girls with the small container of oil to give them the skills, love, and support to shine for all eight days and well beyond.
In the spirit of Chanukah and in honor of our girls at Lev Lalev I wanted to share with you eight quotes which serve as the backdrop for the work we do in helping our Jewish orphans. At the same time, I thank you and honor you, our LevLalev family for participating in this great Mitzvah of helping to support our Jewish girls in Israel.

1. “A Righteous man falls down seven times, but gets up each and every time” (Proverbs 24:6)
2. “Gam zu L’tova everything that happens, happens for the good” (Talmud, Taanis 21:A)
3. “There are no problems only opportunities for growth” (Rebbetzin Dina Weinberg)
4. “If you are not a better person tomorrow then you are today, then why do you need to have a tomorrow”. (Nachman of Breslov)
5. “Say little- do much” (Ethics of our Fathers)
6. “If you don’t know what you are living for, you haven’t yet lived” )Rabbi Noach Weinberg Ob’’m)
7. “Torah is much more then education- its transformation and leads us from one generation to another”
8. “I don’t speak only because I have the power to speak, but rather I speak because I don’t have the power to remain silent” (Rabbi A.Y. Cook)

Thank you for fulfilling the great Mitzvah of Tzedakah and giving each of our girls a precious legacy which she would otherwise not have. Supporting our girls and provides them with the physical, emotional, and spiritual tools that they need to grow and prosper. Thank you so much and may your Chanukah be one of joy and happiness.
